WATCH: Sarah G channels old-school charm in 'Miss Granny'

MANILA, Philippines – The first full trailer of Miss Granny was released by Viva Entertainment on July 20, promising an entertaining film driven by Sarah Geronimo's old-school charm – and flawless musicality.

The film is a Filipino adaptation of the 2014 South Korean blockbuster hit of the same name. In it, Sarah plays Fely, a grumpy grandmother who is magically transformed into her younger self after having her portrait taken at a photo studio.

With her youth restored, she helps her grandson (James Reid) make his dreams of being a musician come true by giving his band's angry rock music a sunny 50s-pop twist. (WATCH: Sarah Geronimo goes retro for 'Miss Granny' theme song)
